The Hidden Security Risks of Automotive Electronic Systems

What comes to mind when you think of an automotive energy source? I’m guessing of all the things you could possibly imagine tamarind shells wouldn’t be one of them… but maybe they should be. To start things off in this week’s Fish Fry podcast, I take a closer look at a new multi-national research study that could pave ways to supply energy to cars. (Spoiler Alert: … Read More → "The Hidden Security Risks of Automotive Electronic Systems"

If You Can’t Trust TrustInSoft, Who Can You Trust?

If you are a hardware design engineer, you are doubtless familiar with the concept of formal verification as it applies to hardware design, but have you ever considered how formal verification might relate to software and the developers thereof (bless their little cotton socks)?

Life can be a rum old thing, and no mistake. When it comes to formal verification, … Read More → "If You Can’t Trust TrustInSoft, Who Can You Trust?"

Turning Flat Images Into 3D Scenes

If Elon says it, it must be true. Autonomous vehicles don’t need no steenkin’ lidar sensors. We can do it all with cameras. A nice idea, but converting camera images into useful data in real time is tricky. Very tricky. 

Cameras are stupid, mostly because they operate independent of one another. They have no spatial awareness, no concept of … Read More → "Turning Flat Images Into 3D Scenes"

Better than a Human Driver: Trusted Electronics and Functional Safety

In today’s Fish Fry podcast, we have a virtual sundae of electronic engineering goodness. We’ve got a scoop of autonomous driving, a scoop of IIoT, a little Infineon secret sauce, and a whole lot of sprinkles… because what good is a sundae without sprinkles, right? First up, Phil Hutchinson (element14) joins me to discuss element14’s “Low Power IoT Design Challenge with Infineon Technology”. We take a … Read More → "Better than a Human Driver: Trusted Electronics and Functional Safety"
